AMAZON EDITORIAL REVIEW: Now a major motion picture starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Billy Nighy, and Dev Patel

When Ravi Kapoor, an overworked London doctor, reaches the breaking point with his difficult father-in-law, he asks his wife: “Can’t we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away.” His prayer is seemingly answered when Ravi’s entrepreneurial cousin sets up a retirement home in India, hoping to re-create in Bangalore an elegant lost corner of England. Several retirees are enticed by the promise of indulgent living at a bargain price, but upon arriving, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once sophisiticated hotel has stalled, and that such amenities as water and electricity are infrequent. But what their new life lacks in luxury, they come to find, it’s plentiful in adventure, stunning beauty, and unexpected love.

I chose this one from a "Books whose titles start with "B" box" My husband and I enjoyed the movie so I am looking forward to reading the book!

Journal Entry 8 by Agrace at Frisco, Texas USA on Sunday, June 08, 2014
It seldom happens, but I enjoyed the movie more than the book in the case of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. While I could relate to the retirees in the movie and left feeling uplifted, I could more easily relate to the children in the book and found it to be a bit depressing.
